Theory & Playing Classes


2017 – 2018

Regularly scheduled monthly Theory & Playing classes run from September through May. These classes include theory, music history, music appreciation, ear training, sight singing, sight reading, music theory games, and preparation for the MTAC Certificate of Merit Written Theory Exams and for the Royal Conservatory of Music Certificate Program Academic Written Theory Exams. Students also have the opportunity to perform pieces or technical studies from their current repertoire.

All students are expected to attend a minimum of six Theory & Playing Classes, between the beginning of September and the beginning of March, in preparation for Certificate of Merit Theory Exams, and additional classes in preparation for Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) Theory Assessments. The fee per class will appear on your statement each month that your child attends a Theory & Playing Class. If you cannot attend one of your scheduled classes, just let me know; I will try to reschedule you to a different group that month.

Theory & Playing Class Fees include the use of circulating studio sight reading books, studio ear-training CDs, music theory games, test-preparation materials, and photocopying expenses for practice theory tests and review worksheets. Theory & Playing Class Fees do not include the cost of or CM/RCM Theory/History/Harmony Workbooks/Textbooks or RCM Melody Playback and Rhythm Clapback books; these items will be invoiced on your monthly billing statement when distributed. (I am trying to implement a trade-in system for the MDP Melody Playback and Rhythm Clapback books.)

We may also have special composition workshops scheduled throughout the year.

Classes are typically on Sunday afternoons and scheduled around various events, such as examinations, competitions, and festivals.

Theory & Playing Classes are listed on the Lesson & Event Calendar.
